Okay, so it might be a tight squeeze, but that sump carey recommended will fit.
Its dimensions are 24"L x 12"W x 16"H, and the space I'm working with is 47.5"L x 15"W x 23"H
Got a few more questions though lol. So as far as the plumbing goes, would it be okay to run it with flexible tubes going from the sump up and over the rim of the aquarium, for both intake and output? If you don't understand what I mean, just imagine the standard set-up for just about any canister filter. Or does it have to be a solid PVC plumbling system?
Also, will there be any need to drill my tank and install an overflow system?
I'd rather avoid doing so, if at all possible, as this project is going to call for a good deal of work as it is lol.
Lastly, I've been looking at some possible lighting systems on ebay, and I've found some selling for prices that seem almost too good to be true. There was a quad lighting system with moonlights and all selling for $100. My gut tells me that the deal's just too good to be true, but at the same time, at that price, I'm almost willing to take the gamble, and the seller has really good ratings. Anyone have any experience with these cheap, Chinese lights?
Sorry again for all the questions!
